Live Review and Photos: Volumes Music Festival (Part Two) - Oxford Square, Oxford Street, Sydney (29.08.15)

Usually Oxford Street at 4 o’clock in the arvo boasts nothing more than a few old guys having a VB at the local pub, and maybe a couple of loud and obnoxious girls with penis paraphernalia going out for a hens night. You can imagine how shocked they’d have been this past Saturday when Oxford Square was flooded with hundreds of music enthusiasts, transforming the street into the new music festival to keep an eye on, VOLUMES.

Festival Review: The Farmer and the Owl - University of Wollongong, Wollongong (14.03.2015)

Going down to Wollongong University to attend Farmer and The Owl is an absolute joy. The trip which is only a touch over an hour’s drive from Sydney is an ease and the festival is filled with laid-back easy-going coastal vibes. That is despite the healthy helping of raucous rock that filled out the line-up.

Bass Drum of Death, The Mess Hall, DZ Deathrays, Bad//Dreems and more to play the Farmer & The Owl Festival in Wollongong!

Live Review: Dune Rats + Shining Bird + The Walking Who - Oxford Art Factory, Sydney (21.06.14)

Few bands have embodied slacker culture to the extent of Dune Rats. Frankly it seems amazing that they have even managed to get around to writing an album, let alone getting out on the road to support it, but here we are at a sold out Oxford Art Factory with a rowdy crowd, pumped to celebrate with their favourite bong smoking trio.

FBi Social celebrates third birthday with massive party!

Three years ago, what started as a pop-up venue quickly caught on by showcasing the best live local talent around. Kings Cross Hotel had become a hub for local lovin' concert goers, and it's all thanks to FBi Social.

DZ Deathrays, Ernest Ellis, Awesome Tapes From Africa and more round out the Secret Garden Festival's lineup!

The sold-out Secret Garden Festival has dropped a second artist announcement that is sure to make people either ecstatic that they snagged tickets or devastated they missed out, one of the two. There's just under a fortnight to go until these bands come together for one hell of a party and considering the initial lineup was already ridiculously good, it's no surprise that the event organisers have gone and upped the ante with this second lot as well.

Sydney Festival Live Review: Kurt Vile & The Violators + Shining Bird - Sydney Town Hall (22.01.14)

There are people who court fame and celebrity and then there’s artists like Kurt Vile. The Philadelphia native is one unlikely musician because while he is great at writing colourful, psychedelic tunes, you do get the sense that he’d be much happier playing in a studio than to a sold-out, Sydney crowd. But just as many shoe gaze acts have proven, you don’t necessarily have to strut around like a peacock or be a showman to cause a stir in the audience.
